So I pulled out my calculator to check. Using 4.55L/gal and 1.61km/ml I find that 18mpg calculates to 15.7L/100k which is close enough to the 16L/100k I had a guesstimate at. Google gives me a result of 15.6934L/100k which is pretty dam close as well. It also gives a result of 14.124L/100k for 20mpg so a reasonable rounded conversion of 18 - 20mpg would be 14 - 16L/100k which is a long way from 10 - 13L/100k.

To replace the coolant and flush the radiator, do you just undo the bottom hose to drain, then put the garden hose in and let it run?
What is the capacity of the engine and radiator, I need to know to get the coolant to demineralised water ratio correct?
There has been a lot to say for the cooling history of the Chev. In the beginning the 6.2 which morphed into the 6.5 was a reliable engine with mechanical fuel injection and things mostly worked well. In standard NA form the Chev runs a 76 GPH water pump, a viscous fan and a single thermostat...
